So, that Winter Village contest is going on, and I (surprisingly) haven't seen any entries yet! I can't enter this digital entries aren't allowed. I made this for fun, anyway, I do it every year. Last year I made a candy store. But this year, I thought I'd try something smaller; a book store!


The store itself is 628 pieces, there is a light brick, but I will get on to that later. I had a few design flaws, like the rounded window. I wanted it to have some icicles, but using the green rounded plates wouldn't allow me to have them in some places. I tried my best not to have the window's roof from the post office set, so I kinda.. altered it. Some scenery is included; a tree with a snow pile (from the snowblower), and a small bridge with a stream underneath and a little wreath.

The minifigures:

Then a few inside images:

The fireplace and light brick, that shines through the window!

So that's my Winter Book Store. I hope you all liked it!

Comments appreciated :classic:

This is a really cool build! It looks like a winter village set right from Lego. I really like your snow blower design too. Nice job overall! :thumbup:

This looks very nice for WV series. You should definitely build it with bricks. The snowblower is a nice detail.

I normally don't feel like commenting on digital designs, because they rarely look all that good - but this one is a very nice one. I'd love to see this brick-built - it'd look just as nice without those icicles, so that's an easy way around that design problem.

This looks really great.  You've nailed the look and feel of the official Winter Village sets.

I would love to see this done in bricks.

Thanks everyone! As much as I'd love to make this in real life, I'm afraid I can't purchase them at the moment. That and they probably wouldn't get here in time. :tongue:

If anyone wants certain pics, say so. :thumbup:

I was wondering if anyone was going to use the green life preserver! I ordered for my Winter Village entry back in Oct. Makes a perfect wreath! Nice build too bad you can't make in real bricks. I am excited to show mine off soon

Thanks for sharing. This is a really neat build. I agree, let's see it in brick form! Money is no object right...

With that said, I do love the bridge and stream idea. I would almost want to borrow that for an official set. The green preserver/wreath is a good idea. I looove the bookshelf. I always struggle with making nice looking bookshelves, but this is brilliant and simple. I may have to borrow that too (if you don't mind).

If you can, try to enter something else in the contest..on second thought, give us a fighting chance so don't enter anything!
